Getting married

You’re getting married? Congratulations! When is the big day? Where’s it going to be? Have you thought about colour schemes? Will you have a theme?

It’s easy to get carried away but before you get wedding fever there’s something a little less romantic you need to do first: work out how much you can afford to spend on it all.

A survey by Brides Magazine in November 2014 put the average cost of a UK wedding at £19,363. Excluding the honeymoon, the three biggest expenses were the reception venue at £4,189, the catering at £3,063 and the wedding ceremony venue at £2,223.
